You were my sunshine, my only sunshine
When skies were cloudy, I was doing just fine
You said you missed me;
"After this semester,
We could take a ride down and pass the time"

But if all the same,
I'd become quite content with a young lady
That I entertain

No, we don't talk much
But she lets me hold her
And she puts my old ways straight to shame

I got a home and the house right where I left it
I think I should take some time
They're all sitting around,
Oh baby, come back to life
If you don't, I think I'll be fine

I've got these new friends
That work the night shift
At the basement on the corner of Third
They bring me liquor
But I can't drink it
No, I feel lonely and absurd

You got a home and your house right where you left it
I think I will take my time
We're all sitting around
Oh baby, come back to life
I'm just hoping one day I will die

Its so much easier to complain,
When you've got nothing to say
Its so much easier to maintain
A sense of who you are
Its so much easier to sustain
A relationship that we can't even give a name
And I'm so sorry

We got a home and the house right where we left it
I think you should take some time
We're all sitting around
Oh baby, come back to life
I'm just hoping I can stay alive

I got a home and my house right where I left it
I think I will take my time
And one day I promise I'll come back to life
And that day, girl,
You will be mine
